Convince Me

Here I am holding a Den UCLA vs USC voucher to be claimed for hard tickets. I picked it up on Thursday (pickup deadline was Friday) and the priority number is 940. I don't know how many tickets we are allocated, but being the 940th student a couple days before pickup deadline, it doesn't seem that there will be lots of UCLA presence in the Coliseum.

I asked my friend who is a Den ticket holder whether he is grabbing the voucher, but his answer was inconclusive. I believe he ended up NOT getting it. So I'm just holding on to this lone voucher.

I was in the game last year when the game coincided with finals week and thought to myself that using Finals as an excuse for not attending was kind of lame. I also couldn't believe the red shirts in our student section. Watching the Trojans and their fans come into our house and calling it theirs was one of the angriest moments I've been in all my years watching sports. Sadly, this year's visit to the RB hasn't lifted my spirits about this team. Sure there were flashes of what might be in store for the future, but 4 straight losses (although to good teams) was tough.

With that said, here I am holding this claim voucher. I have never thought of putting the ticket on sale in public so that a trojan might get it; the only place I would give it away if I decide so would probably here to fellow Bruins.

I am fairly uninformed when it comes to the past UCLA v USC games, but I did watch 13-9. What I remember was a pretty good, mobile QB and #44 wreaking havoc on the trojans o-line.

I know that when the guys in Blue and Gold face the mustard n ketchup, records don't matter. Streaks don't matter. All-american accolades, the number of stars don't matter. Anything's possible. Yet I don't feel that this year's team will put a decent fight against the trojans. We're overwhelmed in the talent department.

To me, all signs point to a blowout loss in the Coliseum. I am having thoughts of giving away my ticket for a price. Can anyone convince me to hold on to it?
